A brand new Zero Theorem trailer has been unveiled; surely further cementing whatever initial thoughts you had about the latest film from Terry Gilliam (Brazil, 12 Monkeys, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas). This U.S. trailer succeeds in making the film appear as straightforward as possible; showing off Gilliam’s quirky visuals and Christoph Waltz’s good performance. Zac Platt caught it recently and, while he applauded Gilliam’s “whimsy and enthusiasm,” he stated that “nothing new is really being said that justifies just how silly and masturbatory The Zero Theorem proves to be.” You can read the full review right HERE. Either way, you should watch it for yourself and let us know what you thought. Check out the latest trailer to help make your decision…
The Zero Theorem stars Starring Christoph Waltz, Melanie Thierry, Lucas Hedges, Ben Whishaw, Tilda Swinton, David Thewlis, and Matt Damon.
Official synopsis for The Zero Theorem:
An eccentric and reclusive computer genius plagued with existential angst works on a mysterious project aimed at discovering the purpose of existence – or the lack thereof -once and for all. However, it is only once he experiences the power of love and desire that he is able to understand his very reason for being.
